Laniakea: A Pot Of Powdered Nettles album review
Ulver man Daniel O'Sullivan’s brilliant strange brew.
Laniakea comprises Massimo Pupillo, of Italian experimentalists Zu, and Daniel O’Sullivan, whose multi-instrumental talents grace Ulver, Grumbling Fur and early Guapo. Together, this self-described “galactic gospel duo” make an awesome post-rock racket. Their album’s four lengthy pieces open out into a much larger maze of sound that is at once ancient and modern; it’s almost like eavesdropping on some arcane, occult ritual dedicated to summoning the very spirit of electricity itself.
